irony if president obama looks a little like george bush by engaging in a limited military strike in syria. therefore drawing united states deeper into another middle east conflict. >> irony, indeed. the white house indicated it may not wait for the united nations weapons inspectors to return from syria to present findings, emphasizing they will not be swayed by the u.n.. with other allies now saying they will not join any strike, and the united nations security council said to me in a few days -- set to meet in a few days, if washington goes soon it could find itself acting alone. >> the briefing just broke up. has the white house got the backing he needs here at home, if not abroad? like that is a question that will be answered in the coming hours. what we do know is smooth the evidence they presented, they actually said that bashar al- assad's brother may have been involved in the chemical weapons attack alleged on eastern damascus. they said they have intercepted some sort of calls and such removal in before the attack as well. this has not swayed some members of congress, key

and continued through george bush's years in office, 2008. >> president obama inherited the recession in 2009 and lasted for six months. it officially ended in june of 2009, president obama's first term. when the recession hit in 2007, unemployment was at 4.7%. today, it is at 7.4%. so, unemployment is still 2.7% higher than what it was before the great recession, 2007-2009. item, job losses. during the 2007-2009 reception, 8.7 million jobs were lost, but since 2009 end, 6.7 million jobs have been created over the four-year period, 2009 to 2013. that means we are still at a deficit of 2 million jobs. >> do you have the impression sitting here as five auditors? >> i hope not. >> you want to do anything with these numbers before we all collapse of bored em? >> ? >> all of us who work in print and media have seen what happens with the seismic changes like amazon and the new internet economy that we are in. this also offers a lot of opportunities. jeff bazo's taking over the washington post, for example. he understands distribution, how to get books out right away. the post knows newspapers. >> t

. the amount of regulatory rules finalized in his first term lag behind that of president george w. bush's first term with nearly 12% fewer rules. president obama's rahman comes with a heavy price tag. 186 of his roles finalize his first term were deemed economically significant. that means that each rules annual economic impact is more than $100 million. the cost which blows the '81 economically significant roles in of the water. with more on this, editorial board member of the wall street journal. thank you for being with this. the count the shows the presence of oz first term had fewer regulations. it's askew. there are time coming up that just aren't quite final. >> that's exactly right. those to make a loss to the amount of regulatory burde you're talking about thousands or perhaps even tens of thousands of new pages of regulations. those are the big when it comes to new regulations, let's not forget, the climate change agenda, the apa. this is the fact that will be defined not by legislative achievements by president obama because he can't get much done, but rather through regulati
is to a certain extent this wasn't a criminal enterprise. this was a program started ironically by george bush who has been motivated to get more into the hands of people who may not be able to afford them. remember, wh all of this cleared out, there were a lot of reviews, lots of executives. two things went on, the focus wasn't remedied, salvaging us from economic collapse. the second was to look and see if there was the smoking gun. it wasn't throughout the industry, the entire mortgage debacle was not all bad. there was a genuine purpose of good behind it. one of the last reasons you get the feeling this is going to be a big mistake is because in pandering to the populist who wants to see a head carried through the town square, we are fighting last fight. there were about 2000 referrals to the justice department of bank fraud. since '95 there have been about seven or eight per year. part of the reason is because they re-tasked people. there is a limited number of people working for these units of the government and starting about '95 they refocused on health fraud. now you can actually see we a
who is going to get the middle-class boat which continues up to this day. george bush won decides to look more middle-class by having a pizza with factory workers. he buys socks at jcpenney as well. bill clinton just has a better story. he promises to rebuild the prosperity of ordinary americans. and it doesn't hurt that he's from hope arkansas so of course he wins. things are rough going in the early 90s but things pick up in the mid-90s when the economy starts turning around. the beneficiary of a good economy in the second term and the rising stock market. i'm sorry? the resurgence? the recession ended and then we have the technology boom. you have the internet coming along in 1995 just around his second term and the stock market goes crazy with the bubble so it's inflated in the bubble is not real but if you had money in the stock market you do very well in the late 90s. so the upper middle class who does have money in the stock market pulse further away from the lower middle class who doesn't have a lot of money in the stock market. the stock market is benefiting from this tec
. the president is going off on vacation but the last commander in chief, george w. bush, also took his share of r and r. at this point in george w. bush's presidency, mark knoller with cbs figured this out, george w. bush had spent 367 days at his ranch in texas or at his family's compound in kennebunkport, maine. that, of course, according to mark knoller who says also, that president obama, who doesn't own a vacation home or have a family compound, has only spent 92 days of his presidency on vacation and before he heads out of town he's going to make more news. the president will be holding a news conference at the white house at 3:00 p.m. and, you know, i just got to say, and i always go back, ed rendell, to a maureen dowd column talking about first ladies and who the great first ladies were and how pat nixon was great at making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that would relax richard nixon and as maureen said and she wasn't being sarcastic or snippy at all, if that put the president's head in a better place, to make decisions regarding china or the economy or -- then that's exactly what th
of george w. bush. thank you for the invitation. thunder a little bit when you talk about four percent growth year it i would add to what you said, that i do not think we can accomplish four percent growth without immigration. it is a precondition to get to that higher growth rate. it may be too low. we are in the fourth leader -- year of non-recovery. there is no reason the economy cannot he recovering much faster than it is geared five, six, or seven percent growth. it is interesting, if you look at the time i called the quarter-century of spectacular, unprecedented growth in america, 2005 -- 1980 two 2005 -- to 2005. let in well over 200 americans in that time. badle say immigration is for the economy or it causes high unemployment. the actual evidence shows the opposite, that the biggest boom. of american history was the greatest in immigration. it is circumstantial evidence. a second point is with respect to state. it is so interesting. we do a lot of work at the wall street journal. comparing texas to california, it is a good comparison if you are from texas and believe in the fr

working in intelligence while serving in the air force. former president george w. bush appointed him as a member of the cia in 2006. his mission was to strengthen information gathering capabilities. hayden oversaw the controversial surveillance of domestic communication carried out without warrants. snowden's case he said is very different from any other information leak in the past. >> it's not a glass of water or a bucket of water or a cup of water. that's bad enough. what snowden revealed is what i call the plumbing. he revealed how it isry acquire information and the sources and the methods we use to go out and get this data for the safety and for the liberty of american citizens. >> snowden first took refuge in hong kong before flying to moscow. he suspects that snowden may have leaked confidential information to officials in china and russia. >> i do know both the chinese and the russian services are sophisticated. and therefore i have every expectation that we will be using all the tools available to them if they thought that in these computers or thumb drives or disks or what
. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne

? do you intervene. >> laura: i didn't campaign there giving a big speech saying that george bush was the big bully and i was going to turn the page and it was going to be hope, love and rainbows for the whole world. that wasn't me campaigning. we have a president of the united states that came in under a big promise of bolstering u.s.' image around the world and our approval around the world is going down not going up. and the place place is in chaos over the president to say it's complicated. it's a weak response it shows his response is nonsensical. >> what's the response. >> lindsey graham and john mccain is right for us to send $1.3 billion over there when they are using that money to kill people in the streets, that probably isn't such a good thing to keep doing. that's one idea but, you know, i'm not president. >> well, but if you take that money away and destabilize the military over there, we're talking about a massive country on the border with israel. ask the israelis what they think about us continuing to support the military. >> laura: you mean, it's difficult but tha
to go in, get it done. the reason it lasted so long, we're in there, not getting the george bush done. you either do it or you don't, on the side of backing off and waiting, there is 116 bipartisan, we sent a letter to president obama asking him to wait. president obama isn't on the hill meeting with people. he will be there tonight. he hasn't been there all week or the past year. and this is something they're saying you need to slow down because there are implications for what we're going to do here. >> it's hard to figure out where we're going to start. first of all, you are saying these islamists are killing -- >> women and children are on the line, they're dying. >> some say muslim extremists killing muslim extremists. >> their children are in the hospital. be i the way, iraq, we lost 10,000 people in iraq and spent trillions of dollars. >> we don't know who is doing it. we are hearing through a report that israel, it's the syrian government. we don't know that for sure. can we listen, this is axelrod saying, describing the difference between syria and iraq. >> this is no differen
. there are all kinds of safeguards built into this. i remember george bush, when he talked about this program, when it was first revealed by the new york times. he said, when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is kind of the underlying philosophy of this program. talking again -- it always intends to spill over into people thinking, maybe we are monitoring the actual content of their conversations, is we are not all stop this metadata. it is effectively the outside of the envelope that is put in your mailbox. it is that information that is on the envelope. and the date stamp in the postage stamp. would you have people believe that metadata has no significant privacy interest? i would rather, if i had a choice -- i hope not to have either of these choices -- of having every phone conversation i have for 30 days listens to, which is impractical, to have a large number of people doing all my metadata collected for 30 days. i would much rather. >> if it was collected by proctor and gamble or colgate, i would be worried. sometimes, we do not thi
-span: do you think people would be surprised you voted for george bush in 1980? >> guest: i suppose so because i think the most surprised person would probably be president bush. write to what what you think you'd be surprised? >> guest: well i think most presidents get sensitive about the post and "newsweek" as well and he had his issues with us but i think any president does. but i suspect he would not think i voted for him. c-span: give us a thumbnail sketch of the post today. how many newspapers and television stations? how big is said and what is the revenue on a yearly basis? >> guest: we are about ad 1.6 million in annual revenues and the company holds mainly "the washington post" and we have a small newspaper the herald and half of the international "herald tribune" and may have "newsweek" and six television stations and 1.5 million cable connections, and we also have -- which is our medium of "the washington post" web site. c-span: are you still chairman of the executive committee? -- committee. >> guest: i am. c-span: how long were you chairman of "the washington post"? >> gu
believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th
of the -- you could -- does the ghost of tony blair and george w. bush and saddam hussein hung heavily over parliament? >> absolutely. in all the -- not just skepticism, almost cynicism about the what the government says about the intelligence was the back drop. it's larger than that. i think something has been going on for years, if not decades in europe, gradual weakening of commitment to defense, preoccupation of -- >> what do you make of o-- ow hm france saying we need a political solution. i would love france to come forward with this magic political solution. this is like richard nixon's secret plan to end vietnam in 1968. there's not one. >> exactly. there's not going to be a political solution to syria. syria sill in the relatively early phases over a prolonged civil war. what's interesting about britain, a country that distanced itself from europe over economic issues and now distancing itself from the united states over strategic issues. this is small britain, small europe. we've ended the era -- >> why is that? how does europe find itself in a position or britain where it's separ
